Luther College Sustainability Intern Caleb Mattison will present a program about carbon footprints at Decorah Public Library Wednesday March 5, 6:30 pm, in the 2nd floor Mezzanine Gallery. The program is free and open to all ages.


Mattison says, “We hear about global warming and carbon footprints a lot these days: footprints of our cars, planes, light bulbs, and yes, even food. So what’s it all about?”


During his presentation Mattison will briefly discuss the meaning and implications of global warming but will focus primarily upon the four main areas of the average American carbon footprint and their impacts. He will also address ways to become more planet-friendly, including some quick and simple approaches and a few that require more dedication.


“If you are concerned about global warming and your additions to a serious global issue, please join me on March 5th to learn more about the concerns and the solutions,” adds Mattison.


Mattison graduated in 2007 from Luther College with a Spanish degree. He lives in Decorah and works as the Campus Sustainability Intern, coordinating the school’s movement towards an environmentally friendly future. He loves being outdoors, throwing a Frisbee, sitting by campfires, playing music, and improving his primitive skills.
